Hello! Distress ink watercoloring again for this thank you card. I just brushed on Distress ink refills. Dropped a drop on acetate, spritzed with a few shots of water and brushed it on here and there on watercolor paper…very forgiving. yay!
I die cut the Feathertree Frame in heavy white card-stock, inked it by pouncing it with an embossing pad and pouring on the gold embossing powder. I used Tsukineko’s gold powder this time.
The sentiment is stamped with the MISTI stamping tool and embossed with the same ink and powder on a strip of vellum.
Linking my Thank you card to some challenges…
Here I did the same thing with the Distress ink refills but just brushed straight across but overlapped the strokes… wilted violet, chipped sapphire, tumbled glass and forest moss, I think…I always think I’ll remember! ugh.
I die cut the Forest Tree Frame die in heavy white card-stock, die cut the owl in kraft card-stock, inked him with Gathered Twigs Distress ink, colored his eyes with a Copic Sketch black marker and added white to his chest with the Sharpie White pen…links to the products below.
Sentiment stamped with Taylored Expressions new Oreo Hybrid stamp pad and the MISTI stamping tool.
Whew – one more card for today…I’ve had this one done for awhile but just haven’t gotten it worked in but I need to!
I watercolored the backgrounds and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Brush pens…love them too! oh you know, these days…what’s not to love about everything in the paper crafting industry! So much wow out there!
Some of the Sharpie white pen dots again and a sentiment stamped with the MISTI again…YES, if you’ve had any doubt whether this tool is worth the investment, I’m here to tell you YES, you need it and will LOVE it! I have both sizes and two of each…I share with our grandkids and classes too though..wink, wink. Our granddaughters all want them for their birthday gifts this year too! So far two down…two to go! lol
ok – I’ll shut up. It’s Saturday and the eve of a big get something done vacation weekend! I’m expecting Tim home any minute to work. Painting and fixing. yuk. But thankful cuz it needs done!
OH – crazy morning though… did this happen to any of you? I got woke up a few minutes after 7 this a.m. because the bed was shaking!!! So strange! It happened 3 times. Earthquake in Oklahoma and I’m in IA! This happened one other time some years ago…same thing…still sleeping and woke me up but I’d forgotten and didn’t put two and two together until I checked Facebook and my sister commented that they were out eating breakfast and the pictures were moving on the wall in the restaurant! Yikes that we were feeling something so far away from both of us. She lives 3 hours away from me!
Did it wake you up? Hope some mosquitoes lost their lives! Ha!
Thanks for stopping by! ttul!
